Spore coming to both PC and Mac later this year

Spore coming to both PC and Mac later this year

Time to get all excited again because another morsel of Spore news has been let loose. This time the news comes from an unexpected place, MacWorld. Of course being that the announcement was at MacWorld the news is that Spore will be released simultaneously on both Mac and PC later this year. Yeah, we have heard “later this year” from the Spore team before but we will forgive them if they don’t break our hearts again. EA Maxis VP of marketing Patrick Buechner had this to say about EA’s decision to bring Spore to the Mac:

“[We] think the Macintosh user is somebody who is, typically, a creative individual. Part of the appeal of the Mac is that it allows you to do creative things very easily. And we think that lines up very closely with what you can do with Spore … So it just feels like a natural place for Spore to be, and we’re thinking about it up front rather than as an afterthought.”

An official announcement is expected later today along with a preview at MacWorld.

Unreal Tournament III coming to Macs early next year

I get the feeling we don’t give enough love to those crippled by their love of the apple shaped logo. Never fear macheads, for your yearly game is soon coming courtesy of renowned Mac porters MacSoft. The game of course is none other than Unreal Tournament III. There’s no specific time frame other then “early 2008″, but then again you’ve always been a patient bunch.

Ubisoft’s free browser based game: Heroes of Might and Magic Kingdoms

Friday, December 14th, 2007

Ubisoft announce free browser based game Heroes of Might and Magic Kingdoms

Ubisoft have announced that their long running turn-based strategy franchise, Heroes of Might and Magic, will be hitting web browsers. Heroes of Might and Magic Kingdoms will be playable for no monetary fee, but you’ll be hassled by advertising to entice you to buy items or gold. When it comes to playing online against thousands of people however, it’s a pretty small price to pay.

For those who live in the UK and wish to partake in the beta all you have to do is buy a copy of the Heroes of Might and Magic Complete Edition for your code. We aren’t sure how the rest of the world gets in on the beta, but your best bet is to head over to the game’s website and sign up for updates.
